Recently Times of India published an article that Goan Engineers are turning into Farmers. I must say though, not only engineers, even other professionals employed in different fields are trying to be innovative and creative in their own ways, have rediscovered their inner talent and showcased themselves to the world in their renewed avataar. In the days of lockdown, social media has played a crucial role to promote such talent, through Whatsapp, Facebook or Instagram status. In fact most of us have discovered something new to work our hands on, have learnt more patience and to be compassionate to others. There is entire new feeling about respecting mother nature and lot of small children have reconnected with nature (instead of gadgets) and family bonds have become stronger!
While some are just keeping it as their hobby, others have made it into their profession. For example, people who were working abroad and are stuck in Goa, have started with own small and innovative businesses, even if it is temporary. For example fast food restaurants (take-away), selling fish or in other unique ways.
Corona Virus has created panic situation in the entire world and so many deaths have taken place besides multiple times the affected cases! The persistence efforts of doctors and nurses have deeply touched our hearts. In order to pay our tribute to them and keep ourselves safe (thus not causing additional burden on them) from this pandemic, we stayed inside our houses.
